On the topic of rolex dials, not sure if I've said this before, but in the late 80s and early 90s my dad was a commercial pilot and flew often to Switzerland.
Back then rolex was a lot more laissez-faire with modifications from stock - dad remembers clearly being led to a room with a huge selection of cut stone dials in jasper, onyx, carnelian etc, with and without diamond hour markers.
You could also swap bracelets with no problem, and he ended up with an Explorer 1 with the old jubilee bracelet. Also had a gmt on a jubilee I think - he lost that watch while swimming with stewardesses in the Maldives.
Kinda crazy how the times have changed.
